Rainer qualifies for semifinals at USA Indoor Track & Field Championships
Sunday, February 26, 2006
Competing among such world renowned athletes as 2004 Olympic 200m gold medalist Shawn Crawford and 2005 200m world champion Tyson Gay, Rainer was the only collegian to qualify for the semifinals at the nation's premier indoor track event.
Rainer again ran a 6.76 in semifinals, defeating professional track athletes Marcelle Scales (Nike) and former 200m national champion Coby Miller (Nike), but failed to qualify for the finals.
Rainer's performance places him among the nation's best sprinters, and caps off an astounding senior indoor campaign in which he won six races, and claimed two conference championships.
